They Say “Shutdown”; We Say “Long Live the Green New Deal”!
The Green Team 2013 Press Conference: Presenting a Fresh Alternative

What: Press conference introducing the Green Team 2013

Who: The Green Team 2013, a group of candidates currently running for office in New York City under the Green Party of New York State banner

When: Sunday, October 27th, 2013, 12:30 PM

Where: In front of City Hall, 260 Broadway, Manhattan

Summary: A historic occasion will occur in New York City this Sunday afternoon: a group of public servants who cannot be bought, and who have real solutions to offer the people of New York, will gather at City Hall to present their joint program.

The recent government shutdown in Washington did not surprise the Greens. Both sides are acting irresponsibly. The Greens instead offer a plan – a Green New Deal – to help working people, not the banks; the beleaguered soldier, not the Pentagon; the children of our future, not ExxonMobil.

The team’s three citywide candidates for office ‒ mayoral candidate Anthony Gronowicz, comptroller candidate Julia Willebrand and Public Advocate candidate James Lane ‒ along with several New York City Council candidates ‒ will present their ideas to the media and the public. For those bored with the hollow public spectacle of de Blasio vs. Lhota, the Greens offer something quite unusual: a dose of truth.

Left hook! Green Party candidate challenges Democrat Gentile

By Will Bredderman
Brooklyn Daily
Patrick Dwyer has spent his life battling for environmental causes — as an electrical engineering technician at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, as an organizer for the New York Public Interest Research Group and the state Green Party, and most recently as a designer and installer of solar panels in Brooklyn. Now he’s bringing that fight home by challenging incumbent Councilman Vincent Gentile for the seat representing his neighborhood of Bay Ridge, as well as Dyker Heights, Bath Beach, and Bensonhurst. We talked to Dwyer about why he thinks the 43rd Council District is ripe for the greening. Continue reading
